    ha couk sold on domainlore in 2011 and it had "gaming domain specialists" written on the homepage not too long ago

    Doubt they renewed to sell cheaply to one of us, most likely are one of us

    No way in a million years were these renewed due to someone contacting the owner. Won't see any tag or name changes for a good while as they've been scared well off.

    Maybe someone contacted them and said they were collecting generic single word domains for numerous charities they are setting up? No one likes to refuse someone playing the charity card.

    Still nothing new, domain industry bent as a nine bob note lol

    I'm quite often wrong, but no one sells a domain at the last hour, you renew yeah and deal with it the next day, not at the death.

    For the first time in a year or so, I spent half an hour last night shuffling things around to change my tactics a little and I actually saw a ",N" this morning! Pleased I'm taking one domain away from all this and it's related to my new found woodworking hobby - mdf.uk.

    Blown all my quota though now, so good luck to all of you for the rest of the day.

    My catching script went rogue this morning and caught gayporn.uk :eek:

    You'll all be pleased to know that I won't be accompanying it with a suitable photo like Boris yesterday morning ;)

    If anyone would like gayporn (just the domain!) please PM as i'm open to offers :confused:

    Many years ago I purchased FL.co.uk (this was when it was one of only a very limited number of 2 letter domains in existence, registered before 2 letter registrations were blocked, long before the rest were eventually auctioned) from the administrators of an Icelandic bank that had went under, right at the last minute, a couple of days before it was due to drop simply by contacting them after digging around a bit. It was actually quite complicated due the company being in administration as Nominet needed loads of signed paperwork from ex directors, copies of invoices etc to first of all get it renewed. The poor sod I was dealing with actually went to great lengths to assist in getting everything we needed, rooting through the basement to find all the paperwork etc, emailing all the ex directors to get them to sign a permission slip etc.

    It was quite stressful because I had paid them for the domain and then it eventually reached the day it was due to drop while the administrators and ex director were still scrambling around to get all the right paperwork. In the end Nominet actually put a lock on the domain dropping to allow more time for the paperwork to arrive which I'm not sure I've ever seen happen before.

    So yeah I used the contacting method to my advantage before i was properly drop catching but I didn't bother repeating it because it was a lot of work in the end!
